- We carefully handcraft all of our wines at our winery in Estes Park, Colorado.
We use all handpicked, Colorado grown grapes, except for our Spanish Valley Vineyard Riesling which came from Moab, Utah just over the border from Grand Junction. We buy grapes from about a dozen vineyards around Palisade and Paonia on Colorado's Western Slope. These vineyards range in elevation from about 4000 to 5400 feet, making them some of the highest in the world.
Day to night temperature variations typically range from 25 to 30 degrees during the grape maturation months of August and September. The long warm daylight hours of intense high altitude sunlight mature the fruit completely and build the natural sugars. The cool evenings and nights allow the grapes to retain the acids so vital to premium winemaking.
In addition to our award winning wines, the winery tasting room also offers wines made by a number of Colorado's finest wineries: Augustina's, BookCliff Vineyards, Debeque Canyon, Desert Moon, Spero, Tourquoise Mesa, Spruce Mountain Meadery, Redstone Meadery and Bacchus Meadery. (Some of these wineries are also on the Instawine.com network.)
Snowy Peaks carries gourmet foods made by Colorado artisans to complement your wine selection. A sample of our products includes handmade cheeses and chocolates, unique jams and jellies and small batch sodas for the non-wine drinkers. We also have a selection of wine related gift items made by local artisans.
Relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the views of the Rocky Mountains from our tasting room or we can pack your wine and cheese selections to take to nearby Rocky Mountain National Park.
